Blubrry Launched a Patreon Campaign for PowerPress
In July 2015 Blubrry launched a Patreon campaign for it’s podcasting plugin, PowerPress. Via Patreon we are able to support the continued development of the plugin and put more work into it’s new versions. PowerPress is being used by more than 40,000 podcasters, and we appreciate every one of you who also use our hosting and statistics. With your financial support via Patreon we are able to make updates faster.
What is Patreon?
It’s like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, but it’s ongoing. Most are familiar with crowdfunding sites where you are able to make a one-time donation toward a project, well with Patreon it’s a monthly or per creation donation. The PowerPress Patreon page is set up for monthly amounts because our plugin evolution is ongoing. Patreon also features rewards and milestones. The rewards are for our generous patrons and the milestones are goals that we work toward each month.
Rest assured that your donation and information will be safe with Patreon. They accept most major credit cards and PayPal! They even have a mobile app coming out this summer. As a patron you are able to view our page, get insider information and possibly get featured on the PowerPress page on WordPress. Check out their site, and get signed up to be a patron!
PowerPress was created in 2008 because there was a void in the podcast space. Podcasters used WordPress as their publishing platform and it was not being supported properly and sufficiently for podcasts to flourish. Blubrry developers decided to create a free open-source plugin for podcasting. With 100+ features and consistent development, PowerPress provides podcasters the ability to publish their podcast how they want to.

The plugin has now become the most used plugin for podcasting. We release an update typically every 30-60 days, so you aren’t constantly trying to keep up with new features and changes. And if you do have a problem, we provide free support on our forums as well as on the WordPress.org forum. With PowerPress podcasters are able to to Post-Upload-Publish.
